The "God's Not Dead" and "Time Trap" star's engagement news is coming six months after her older brother, Cody Gifford, got engaged to Erika Brown. In an Instagram post at the time, Gifford wrote alongside a photo of her son and his fiancée sharing a kiss that she couldn't be happier for him.


The former "Today" host shared her two children, with her late husband, Frank Gifford; their marriage lasted for 29 years. In April, after leaving "Today," she moved to Nashville, Tennessee, and recently opened up about dating again while having a chat with her best friend, Hoda Kotb, and Jenna Bush Hager.

Gifford admitted that she has not been on a date in 33 years, and she found out things have changed a lot. The former TV host is willing to try, but with two weddings to plan, it might be a while before she fully commits to dating.
